Bereavement Support - The Brigitte Trust

Bereavement Support

Bereavement Support

Grief is a natural process and each person follows their own path in their own time. Volunteer support to a client family extends beyond the funeral with visits for up to three months if requested, with time to remember together. Volunteers can also find ongoing help for their clients from specialist partner charities and local support groups, as well as help with practical issues like paperwork. Sitting quietly and listening can be the most helpful gift of all.

Bereavement Support Group

The Brigitte Trust is running free structured 8-week bereavement programmes run by a professional facilitator for anyone in Surrey struggling with their own grief and bereavement. The sessions are limited to a maximum of 12 people and will be offered in different parts of Surrey according to need.

The aims of the programme are to:

  • provide support with focus
  • encourage mutual support
  • share experiences
  • learn new coping strategies
  • develop some altered thought patterns
